The story of Hell on Wheels follows the former Confederate soldier Cullen Bohannan (Anson Mount), who finds work on the railroad whilst tracking down the Union soldiers responsible for the murder of his wife and child. Cullen was fighting the war while his family remained on the farm (reminiscent of the Gladiator). Immediately, bam, you have our anti-hero Cullen executing one his targets, and it just continues from there.

Hell on Wheels is actually the name of the makeshift town. Out here in the wild West there are Indians, priests, villans, ex-soldiers, whores, and everything in between. Cullen is up against the Swede who enforces the railroads law, and takes a cut for himself on the side. Canadian actor Christopher Heyerdahl who plays the Swede, is stand out brilliant.

This is one hell of a good show. If you enjoy action, violence, great characters, and a gripping story line, then watch this. This is almost as good as Sons of Anarchy - Season 1 [DVD], Dexter : Complete Season 1 [DVD], and Game of Thrones - Season 1 [DVD].

The show is made by AMC in the US and they have decided to make Season 2. Fantastic.

Not knowing what to expect I thought I`d take a look at this series. I`m glad I did, I thought it was a first class western, it seems authentic as to how I would imagine post civil war America would be, it`s gritty, violent & an excellent cast who play their characters without fault. Very watchable & highly recommended. I will buy the second series.

The reason I gave Hell on Wheels season 1 a five star rating, is because in is not like any other western I have seen. It has a lot of action, some humour, bit of violance. A very good story line

American TV continues its run of quality series with this Western set in post Civil War America. There is a sense of the familiar in the way the episodes are put together, using the editing and music stylistic choices that have worked well in other quality TV series, but satisfyingly there is also a sense of something new, in the setting and the characters. The setting is a gritty - well no, lets make that muddy, settlement which houses the workers on the railroad, and moves from time to time to stay where the work is - hence the title. Into this town of ex slaves, immigrants, criminals and whores, comes an ex-Confederate soldier, on the trail of Union soldiers who murdered his wife. However the pleasure in the series isn't this slim character arc, but rather getting to know the range of characters who subvert the usual clichéd expectations in Western - yes, we get the hooker with a heart of gold - but her history is an unexpected one, and yes, we get the lone preacher trying to convert the wretched hive of scum and villainy - but his character is also not as we at first expect. Even Colm Meaney's magnificent railroad baron is a treat, as he defies expectations and manipulates (and occasionally is manipulated) those around him. The head of security is a fantastic creation - The Swede, and then there is Common, playing the ex slave, and Dominique McElligott as the Englishwoman who supplies the beauty against the range of beasts on display. They're all well drawn and well acted characters, which makes this an eminently watchable series.
I had the same view as others as I watched this, that it was good to have a

This series was a great surprise, it has been some time since a good western series was made. A great cast and a very interesting look at the building of the rails from east to west in an effort to heal the wounds of the civil ware that had split the country north to south. Anson Mount is very good as Cullen Bonhanan the ex confederate solied bent on avenging the death of his wife and son at the hands of union soldiers. Colm Meaney as the head of the railway Thomas "Doc" Durrant is marvelous as the baddy you love to hate. You will also find a lot of familiar faces in a great ensemble cast.

I had been told how good Hell on wheels was, but I had missed seeing it on t.v,so I decided to buy series 1&2.
I was not disappointed it is a brilliant western.
The price was very good,and it came with free delivery.
I would certainly use this seller again.

Great acting from thr three male leads sets this series apart. The premise is interesting and I loved the unpredictability of the storylines and the grittiness of the subject treatment. The hero is a delight. good looking enough to make female hearts flutter and macho enough to keep the men engaged. Lots of violence and themes of slavery and the mistreatment of the Native American population add interest and depth to the subject and the narrative. As always there are irritants such as the slightly daffy female lead and the preacher character but they are minor flaws in an otherwise strong raft of characters. We loved it and will be buying the next series - can't say better than that.

Just to back up the above two reviews. I discovered the series by accident, just in time to miss episode one... It is well-written, well-casted, well-acted and 'well' just about everything else. It is tense, gripping and almost visceral. You can feel the tension, hell, you can almost SMELL it.
The main plot rattles along, all the while accompanied by several sub-plots, vested interests and twists and turns involving different cast members at different times.
Basically, this is Great!
